            Thousands of readers have followed the ground breaking programme from Kelly A. Turner, PhD, and achieved successful remission from cancer. Radical Hope co-writer Tracy White is one of the many who did so, and together Turner and White explore the real-life application of the Radi...cal Remission principles and the people who have chosen to take this journey. Each chapter shares a survivor's in-depth story and their interpretation of a key factor in the Radical Remission lifestyle. Turner and White provide updated research and new tips for each factor and present a tenth key factor for integration into your healing approach. Male and female, younger and older, these survivors achieved remission by recognizing and committing to the fact that by taking ownership of their approach to healing, they would be giving themselves the best chance for a longer and healthier life. With warmth, realness and a true sense of hope, the authors shine the spotlight on the pure strength of our own being and offer steadfast support and guidance for making the unique and individual decisions that are best suited for your own journey of healing.

            Despite advances in health care, infectious microbes continue to be a formidable adversary to scientists and doctors. Vaccines and antibiotics, the mainstays of modern medicine, have not been able to conquer infectious microbes because of their amazing ability to adapt, evolve, a...nd spread to new places. Terrorism aside, one of the greatest dangers from infectious disease we face today is from a massive outbreak of drug-resistant microbes. Deadly Outbreaks recounts the scientific adventures of a special group of intrepid individuals who investigate these outbreaks around the world and figure out how to stop them. Part homicide detective, part physician, these medical investigators must view the problem from every angle, exhausting every possible source of contamination. Any data gathered in the field must be stripped of human sorrows and carefully analyzed into hard statistics. Author Dr. Alexandra Levitt is an expert on emerging diseases and other public health threats. Here she shares insider accounts she's collected that go behind the alarming headlines we've seen in the media: mysterious food poisonings, unexplained deaths at a children's hospital, a strange neurologic disease afflicting slaughterhouse workers, flocks of birds dropping dead out of the sky, and drug-resistant malaria running rampant in a refugee camp. Meet the resourceful investigators--doctors, veterinarians, and research scientists--and discover the truth behind these cases and more.

            An eye-opening exploration of blood, the lifegiving substance with the power of taboo, the value of diamonds and the promise of breakthrough science Blood carries life, yet the sight of it makes people faint. It is a waste product and a commodity pricier than oil. It can save liv...es and transmit deadly infections. Each one of us has roughly nine pints of it, yet many don't even know their own blood type. And for all its ubiquitousness, the few tablespoons of blood discharged by 800 million women are still regarded as taboo: menstruation is perhaps the single most demonized biological event. Rose George, author of The Big Necessity, is renowned for her intrepid work on topics that are invisible but vitally important. In Nine Pints, she takes us from ancient practices of bloodletting to the breakthough of the liquid biopsy, which promises to diagnose cancer and other diseases with a simple blood test. She introduces Janet Vaughan, who set up the world's first system of mass blood donation during the Blitz, and Arunachalam Muruganantham, known as Menstrual Man for his work on sanitary pads for developing countries. She probes the lucrative business of plasma transfusions, in which the US is known as the OPEC of plasma. And she looks to the future, as researchers seek to bring synthetic blood to a hospital near you. Spanning science and politics, stories and global epidemics, Nine Pints reveals our life's blood in an entirely new light.
